Dogs are not only accepted at South Tynedale Railway, we consider them one of the family!

We are proud recipients of  Dog Friendly Business awards and we will give your four-legged friend a warm welcome.

Dogs travel free, but do pick up a souvenir dog ticket from the ticket office,  and are welcome in all areas of our site including the cafes. Water bowls are available at Alston and Slaggyford stations but we’ll happily fill a travelling water bottle up for you too – just ask

The permissible footpath of the South Tyne Trail runs right along next to the track (fenced off) and dogs can enjoy wonderful walks with their families. Please help them by scooping their poop as they can’t do it themselves!  The trail starts right next to the free car park at Alston which is open until at least 4.30pm Monday to Sunday in season and can be accessed easily from our Slaggyford station too so it’s easy to park, ride and walk!

Don’t forget to post pictures of your doggy day out on our facebook page; we’d love to see them!
